Baby Behavior & Bangs for Your Buck: Announcing Our #Momisms Contest Winners

May 6, 2016

In preparation for Mother’s Day, we teamed up with our friends at Mental_Floss to collect your most wow-worthy #Momisms, from the hilarious and sometimes embarrassing “I can’t believe she just said that” mom texts, to the heartwarming times when mom really did know best.

We expected to find zany witticisms and sage advice from moms and grandmas, but we had no idea we’d get so many great entries–making it pretty hard to pick just two winners.

We had a great time giggling over the witty, sassy, creative, and insightful ideas that moms and grandmas can conjure up. We couldn’t stand the thought of not sharing the joy from this contest, so before we get our #Momisms winners, we’ve rounded up our favorite quips and quotes for you to enjoy!

#Momisms: Share Your Favorite Quotes From Mom

April 18, 2016

My Grandma Hannah was the first person to introduce me to palindromes, words that read the same backward and forward. Her name, with its impeccable symmetry and simple syllables, still wins as my favorite palindrome. “Mom” is another favorite, though for different reasons. Sure, it was one of the first words I uttered and it holds powerful meaning in my life. But what really tickles me is that the word “MOM” when written in all upper-case letters spells “WOW.”

How perfect is that? Seriously.

Four Elements Mood Board: Water

April 22, 2014

Four Elements Mood Board: Water | Gift Guide | UncommonGoods

Porcelain Barnacle Vase / Make Waves Yarn Bowl / Glasscape Bowl / Ceramic Fish Bones / Under the Sea Pillow / Jellies III by Karen Chan / Jellyfish Earrings / Shattered Glass Bib Necklace

I was most excited to put together this collection of jewelry and home decor that reminded me of water. Having grown up on a small island, three blocks from the ocean and one from the bay, water is the element with which I am most comfortable and most familiar. In putting this all together, it became very clear to me that so many of our artists share the same affection for the deep blue as me.

Inspired by the peaceful hues of the ocean and the unique colors and shapes of its many creatures, this is a collection of goods that will evoke the spirit of this element that is as placid as it is exciting.

Check out the gift guides for Earth and Air that we launched, and check back next week for our last installment of this series, Fire!
